Thirty Minute Birding

This is our city library in Harlingen, TX.

And, the lake across the street from the library with one Black bellied duck walking the edge.

He was going to visit friends who had gathered for my photo.

Day four of the diet starts today. I woke early with leg cramps and crawled to my office to see what I could come up with for you. I am looking forward to a day of bananas and skim milk. The cleansing is over and I'm starting to replenish my potassium and calcium supplies. I took a walk on day two to keep from gnawing the leather arm covers on my office chair. I thought of all the birders who come by for a visit on occasion, and I took a few pictures, but they weren't really identification quality. I didn't see any Eskimo Curlews, or Ivory-Billed Woodpeckers, but I did see the Black Bellied Mexican ducks featured in the photos. I also saw Coots, Red Winged Blackbirds, Grackles, Green Jays, Cormorants, Snowy Egrets, Gulls, Mocking Birds, one Long Billed Curlew, and a few Turkey Buzzards. I'm trying to get some better photography equipment in the digital format so I can really whet your appitite. Oh, there I go again with one of those trigger words.


No, low, free, light;
words I often see
when browsing through my pantry
or refrigerator door.

Let us have some lettuce
with our sprouts and tofu.

One more glass of water if you please.

Measure out a steak
no bigger than my palm
and I shall chew it slowly
while moving Brussels sprouts around.

Adjust the bathroom scale.
Move it ‘round the floor.
Take an average weight for best results.

One more glass of water if you please.

Do you have a public restroom?
I ask every where I go.

One more glass of water if you please.

How many times should one get up at night?

I wonder how much pressure
waistband closures can take?

Isn’t there a pill out that doesn’t make you shake?

One more glass of water if you please.

I’m fasting today.
I really think it’s water weight.
